What is a good age for my child to be on social media?

There is no definitive answer to this question, as the appropriate age for a child to start using social media will depend on a variety of factors, including the child’s maturity level, the specific social media platform in question, and the child’s individual needs and interests. Some experts suggest that children as young as 13 or 14 may be ready to start using social media, while others recommend waiting until the child is at least 16 or 17. Ultimately, the decision of when to allow your child to start using social media should be made in consultation with your child and based on your own discretion and judgement.
